Novak Djokovic showed a superlative level against Aslan Karatsev by defeating him 6-3, 6-4 and 6-2 to access a new final of the Australian Open, the ninth so far in his career.
But at the same time, the current number one in the ATP rankings reached Rafael Nadal in a phenomenal mark: eThe Serbian accumulates 28 Grand Slam finals in his career, as does the Spanish, who lost in the quarterfinals to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
In this way, both players only rank below Roger Federer in this statistic, who has 31 games played for a Grand Slam title in his career.
On the other hand, Djokovic is the fourth player with the most Grand Slam finals from the age of 30 (7), behind Rosewall, Federer and Nadal, who have eight. Now, Nole will want to lift the trophy again in Australia, against the winner of the semi-final between Daniil Medvedev and Tsitsipas.
